G'day all,
I have been looking in the trader for sometime, without luck. Has anyone got any surplus Cruiser 100 steel rims, 5 stud, 16x8. I am wanting to remove the old split rims from my 79 series trayback and put a bit more meat on the road. I think the original Cruiser steel rims look better than the Sunraysias, and they fit perfectly, although the shallow offset rims that come with the turbo diesel wont fit. I am in Melbourne and would love to hear from anyone wanting to unload some of the above.

Give the tyre dealers a try. They get them when new vehicle buyers swap over to flashier wheels. You may get lucky and not have to pay much. After all, you are getting them out of the workshop for them.

Best of luck,

The rfs wheels are pretty hard to come by and will cost a fair bit. All youi can do is keep looking. The problem is everyone knows that they are hard to come by and charge accordingly.

G'day beamer, and others
I have already tried a few yards and 4x4 specialists without much luck.
Wow beamer, $175!!! I have been told that they were once sold at scrap prices and are now harder to source, as I have already discovered.
You can email me at mcoghill at dcsi net au
Thanks for your response

Lithgow Toyota has a set out the back in their pre delivery area.
You could try to buy them but they usually put them on the tray tops as they look better.
There is one at the tyre shop, Main street Lithgow. I think it is the Bridgestone dealer.
Best of luck.

Forgot to mention try Western Toyota at Guildford.
They were going to sell me some 16x7 prado rims for 150 bucks plus gst. They have them as stock items so can do a good deal. Maybe able to do the same for the 100 series rims.
Worth a try.
When you ring them ask for spares. The guys there are really helpfull.

Coupla years ago I did my camper trailer up with same wheels as my 100S Cruiser (have since disposed of that C/T). Was referred to AAA tyres just behind Western Toyota at Guildford (Sydney). They do all the wheel/ tyre upgrades for Western Toyota. They had rims coming out their ears, I bought 3 (same as you are seeking) for $10 each and for another $5 each they put my tyres on them.

Larfin'. Don't know if its still the same arrangement but it would be worth a phone call and might be worth a trip for that price.

Murray,

I have been looking for a second spare of this type of wheel for a while. Did not want to spend $300 odd per wheel from Toyota so rang around wreckers - no one had them. Tried tyre places found nothing there either.

I went to Widetread Tyres Lilydale, they didn't have any but I left my number not expecting them to bother. A few days later they called me and said they culd get one. I happily payed $115 for it. It goes with saying that I was very happy with their service, knowing how rare these wheels are. Their phone number is 03 97350188.

Cheers,
Chris

I didn't expect them to go looking on my behalf when I left my number
